Pokemon Card of the Day: Tropius (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Tropius from the Undaunted set. This is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. Unfortunately Tropius has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon but it does have a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon but again unfortunately it has a high retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Tropius doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first and in my opinion better move of the two is called Fresh-Picked Fruit and for one grass energy card Tropius can remove 6 damage counters from 1 of your benched Pokemon. Tropius' second move requires 3 colorless energy cards, this move called Cutting Wind does 40 hp damage. As far as strategy goes since Tropius is a basic Pokemon you don't have to set it up at all, all I would do is get it on your bench as soon as possible and attach two energy cards to it and wait until you need to heal one of your Pokemon, retreat that active Pokemon with the high damage and move in Tropius remove 60 damage from it and then the next turn retreat Tropius and put that damaged Pokemon back in there. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because the only thing going for this card is that it can remove 60 damage from one of your Pokemon because everything else on this card is not good especially the other move which only does 40 damage for 3 energy cards. I would probably just include 1 of these cards in my deck that way if I wanted I could use it to heal Pokemon otherwise I wouldn't worry about it. So thanks for reading today's review of Tropius from Undaunted stay tuned for more reviews tomorrow.
